calendar. each member of the public may address the board for up to 3 minutes. if it is demonstrated that comments by the public will exceed 15 minutes, the president may continue public comment to another time during the meeting. 12341234a let's >> let's hear from the first speaker. each speaker will have 2 minutes. >> good afternoon, members, don't accept money from the friends of the library. what must be understood that is coming into city hall is coming into belly of the beast. everything in city hall is ripping off those public assets and corporate interest. as private citizens there are barriers to keep us from learning the truth and barriers to keep us out of city hall and barriers to speaking. you don't see it on camera, the supervisors have no reservation about showing their contempt while we are talking. the virtue of democracy depends on empowering the vigilant and that is why the supervisors
deserve the greatest contempt. it's a complete reversal of accomplishment of democracy. marry antonette who is not in on the graph. most of the people in this room know that, david chiu had me arrested in september of 201 1. i have been doing this for a number of years. for those that are knew it comes as a complete shock to learn how antidemocratic and how dishonest the graph of city hall are. city hall has become a marketplace where public officials trade public assets for some benefits to their careers. what is happening in the public library is an
example to every city department. every city wants a friends group because it's the rich instead of the many. the virtues of the city's assets causes real harm to people. david chiu's decision to arrest me cost the law. >> members of the board, ray -- thus the state never intentionally confronts a man's sense intellectual or moral but on the his body. it is with superior physical strength. i was not born to be forced. i
will breathe after my own fashion. let us see who is the strongest. what you see on the screen, is a letter that is september to the san francisco bay guardian. i'm here to talk about the letter. after it was found to violate the law the statement of economic interest, the library commission wanted to help. so what they decided to do is hold a series of discussions outside the public. these were to formulate and revise and statement which demonstrated for release. this was all done illegally. violation of the sunshine ordinance and the brown act. they then next directed a city employee to release the letter on official stationery to the san francisco bay guardian and to the public. after we raised these questions, they said
we'll track it after it had been used legally. today i will discuss specifics about this letter. today i just want to ask this. did mr. herrera learn to act illegally from the library commission or vice versa. personally, i think they have been colluding so long to e evade the law it's simply second nature for now. this was done completely unlawfully violation of the brown act all of this was done with private conversations between those board members led by gomez who is already recommended for removal. >> thank you, next speaker.
>> good afternoon. the libraries action go on and compound. but the supervisors, your body is looking the other way and so you are complicity is very sad and inappropriate thing. last week i mentioned in the cover story i said it had problems that included the size of the friends group operation for example not just providing a party with a contract here or there, but in the case of sf pl raising in 12 years 2000-2012, 10s of millions of dollars which only 10 percent reached the library. specifically from 2000-2012, i noticed the
friends of sf pl had spent $56 million but given the library only $5. they raised and spent $56 million but gave the library less than one 10th which is 5 million. i also said the supervisors received information from the department which was riddled with information and i will go into that further in a letter. i'm concerned about the supervisors. the only thing in 5 years that you have approved in donations from a friend is 9 days prior to the end of the fiscal year use this year
approve this donation. >> good afternoon. make this city shine. give it the dime. make it real fine and look for it not behind. maim -- make it always be kind and it's all mine always be kind. make this city shine and in mine. city be kind and it no line and it going to be hungry. free downtown. you
programs are all closed. we are always going to be down road. it has to be closer for dialysis. >> next speaker. good afternoon. board of supervisors, i'm here to say that tomorrow i'm attending a funeral and i noticed in bayview, in that small area there is a lot of black men dying of prostate cancer. these contractors out there have refused to an abate the dust, the rest of them. the other day there was a meeting at my home where i asked the supervisors
what can be done about this contract. if they were in a white community. they would not refuse to abate the dust. it's horrible out there in the ship yards. it's not all right. every week there are two or three black men dying from cancer. it's epidemic but no one wants to deal with it. what's confusing to me if those many white men are dying in the district or anywhere there would be something done about it. because we are black, no one wants to do anything about it. i'm bringing it to your attention, that in bayview, there are too many deaths of prostate cancer and also women having breast cancer and that's been going on for the last 5-10 years. but you won't do
anything about it. i'm here to ask you can't you do anything about these contractors because it's probably a product of the dust. would you go and see if you can do anything about the health department or do something about the high rate of cancer in that community where i live. >> supervisors, good evening. i want to give a general statement about our obligations to our homeless neighbors and public space. i don't mind speaking off the cuff, i'm here to remind the supervisors to uphold and defend the constitution of the united states and by a world of the national document the 1848
declaration. constitution, we the people of the united states in order to form a more perform union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of a little bit to ourselves and posterity to ordain and establish this constitution for the united states of america. 1848. we hold these truths to be self evidence that all men and women are created equal by their creator with certain unaisle -- unalienable rights to the pursuit of happiness. to preserve these rights regarding
the just powers from the consent of the govps governed. it is the right of those to insist upon the institution to organize a government as to them shall seem most likely to fact their safety and happiness. >> thank you very much. >> good evening, supervisors, my name is pedro. i would like to make a recommended reading for all of you especially if you are doing anything suspicious. the make name of the book is extortion. it's
been in talk shows on tv and he feels the obama administration has manipulated the political system very unfairly especially as it applies to obama's own supporters. i recommend that you read that because it might be relevant in your own political life. secondly, there is an interesting head line that i think is far more important. chronicle has 26 people get 59.7 million over sandusky. i would like to propose how prevalent is homosexual crime especially child molestation. i think that's an important subject that is a lot more important that sugary drinks. the next head line from the
chronicle as prosecutor. secret formula used for corruption. it mentioned the los angeles times received the pulitzer prize for the bell corruption case especially all the ugly details. i would like to suggest that chronicle and examiner do the same here in san francisco and they would probably win a pulitzer prize. the other head lines as jury finds -- what a real shame the city would stab it's own firefighters on these promotional task. if you treat the firemen that way, shame on you.
>> good evening. kids are still being shot in this culture of ours. all we do is talk about shooting and killing. recent ly in chicago, a submit -- summit to talk about violence and imprisonment that will talk about the solutions but the problem will not be eliminated until we change the nature of this society. this country has always glorified the gun culture and general violence entertainment. with today's technological communication
advances it is far worse until we can tackle the sacred cows of the entertainment industry it will never end and puts violence across all races and nationality and classes of people. there are some in this culture. i lost my place. there are some in this and their obsession to keep the population highly competitive are turning the country into an crude rude culture in the world. as james car bell would say, it's the culture stupid. i'm not calling you stupid, but
he said that. i think you wore me out. i'm barely staying awake. >> thank you, next speaker. >> tom gilbert from apartment with a n a little bit of tear in my heart. neil young, if you look at that in google you will see a scar. a couple of comments, picture of the land i -- i i okay monterey. let's
embarcadero. if 8th wash ington wash was 30 percent affordable housing and 10 percent section 8. i would not it because it encroaches embarcadero. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker? >> an carpal , resident for 20 years. i came here for the parks thing. but that's been continued. there are a few things that i left out of my communication relating to that particular topic. that can be our core problems or issues i should say that haven't been
mitigated or any -- it just an appears there has been no thought about the citizen impact in any of these development agreements and the public private relationships and as we see with the friends of the public library, there is a lot of issues. would like the board of supervisors to consider maybe developing whistle blower programs especially for non-profits because inform profit entities have the sec and other agencies looking at them. cities got it's own cities looking at them and mechanisms whether they are followed or not have those mechanisms in place. but the not-for-profit is pretty much nobody 's problem until
something, until scandal hits. i would like to see something go into place sooner rather than later especially with all of these public private deals with non-profits. thank you for your time. >> are there any other members of the p be that wish to speak in general public comment? general public comment is now closed. >> marat -- madam clerk read our adoption calendar. >> yes, item 51-53. >> supervisor kim? >> i would like to add my name as a cosponsor to item 51 for filipino history month. >> colleagues, why don't we have roll call on the adoption

thank you, madam clerk please call item one >> it's the acquisition for pipeline 3 and 4 in san mateo county. >> and mr. up dick. >> today, i eject to approve two proximity and two temporary easements from the california water company at a price you have $3,640. it's a big exclusive decision for the day. they're for the pipeline 3 and 4 cross over project you've seen pieces of that in the past. it improves the conditions around our at the right of ways. in particular the project
strengthens reliability through the energy generators and the concrete pads. communicate control devices. the easements provide for many water there anyone else and into the agreeing then creek. there's over 8 though square feet of are temporary easements for a term of 3 months and just over 8 hundred easement rights. there's a delivery to pg&e they own easement rights as well. i want to remind you where this proposed is arlington and there being a acquired for a few dollars per square footage. so i want to congratulate the

and. >> we have the planning department here who wants to go first. >> i'm michelle from the controller's office. this item is just to change the frequents by which the report impact and fees it requires that we report every year in december and this change changes to once every other year. the development impact fee that is put together is a technical backgrounds counting report and gives back to the inception of the extending r spending and in lieu of improvements. at the same time it requires the f q to submit a report expect
its forward-looking and didn't include all the details that the controller's office i think the view is in terms of staff efficiency it's better to spend time on what people are interested in reading which is aren't and planned activity if it's approved if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer them >> thank you mrs. rogers is from the planning department. >> i'm ms. rogers the planning department approved this and the main focus on the planning commissions effort is the epic report coming out annual this is the change for the controller's office. >> thank you
